Aussie World takes the plunge

Aussie World on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland has opened yet another new attraction and this one is the first of its type on the Sunshine Coast.

AussieWorld New Ride The PlungeSunshine Coast.

The new ride is a log flume ride called The Plunge with not one but two steep climbs and drop-offs.  Riders climb aboard hollowed-out logs that are propelled by flowing water through a waterway before climbing upwards then plunging down a ramp at great speed…..twice!
Riders and spectators will be treated to a water splash created by the downhill momentum of The Plunge.  An entertaining way to cool off on a hot Queensland day!
The Plunge is a thrilling ride and opened to the public on Thursday 8 December 2011 right in time for the December holiday period.
General Manager David Thompson said The Plunge is the third new ride at Aussie World following the successful opening of thrill ride Redback and Giant Slide earlier this year.

“These three new rides complete an expansion project that has cost more than two million dollars and has reinforced Aussie World as a major player in the tourism industry on the Sunshine Coast,” he said.
“This year, due to the park expansion, we have seen record numbers coming through our gates proving that Aussie World has an exceptional product and we will continue to remain affordable and offer extraordinary value for money.”
